bush, he has done this president a favor. president obama appreciates it. he's pulled back from the public discourse but he loves politics. he loves to talk politics and so i can imagine george w. bush, if he gets a private moment, looking over at hillary clinton and saying so what are you thinking. >> but bill clinton is flying separately with chelsea from another location. he presumably has his own plane. jimmy carter and his wife are flying over separately with a group of so-called elders, so that will be a separate plane for them. but all four of those presidents, one current, three former presidents and their wives, they will all presumably be at this memorial service. you were saying the secret service has got to be worried about a situation like that, and even though the south african security forces have been preparing for years, literally, for this day, they've got to be extremely nervous. >> look, the mandela inauguration back in 1994 was a who's who of world leaders as well and went off without a hitch. it was a very emotional, dramatic event. i just spoke to a federa

bill clinton became president and george bush became president and president obama took office, south africa had become a mature democracy or a new democracy, if you will. so the relationship certainly emerged. but i think what you saw with nelson mandela is he was a principled friend. so he was one who was not unwilling to criticize any nation or any individual. we're even learning now that he criticized his own successor as president of the republic of south africa. so he was a giant. >> michael, i want to ask you quickly about this nbcnews.com article that a lot of folks may not be aware of, this part of the article. mandela and other anc officials remained on the terror watch list even as president bush welcomed mandela to the white house back in 1990 because of what was described as a bureaucratic snafu. their names were kept on the list until 2008. >> yeah. >> why is that characterization of nelson mandela -- of him being a terrorist -- why is that characterization itself complicated? >> i think it's less a characterization of the man and more of the association of the man with

obama, not for president bush, not for are president clinton, not for any president. and because senator reid, the distinguished majority leader, believed that the district judges were moving too slowly through the senate, we changed the rules this past year. we said that with district judges, once there's a cloture vote -- and remember, no why judge has ever been denied his seat because of a cloture vote. once there's a cloture vote there can only be two hours of debate, one for the minority and one for the majority. so this is a manufactured crisis. that's what was done in order to do what the democrat majority did on november 21, si which is the most stunning development in the history of the united states senate in terms of a rules change and i intend to talk about that tonight and i want through some very specific facts. not speeches, not something made up but facts. and i'm glad that the majority leader moved four district jz just because every one of the other nine might ask mr. majority leader, why did you not move my name? why are you leaving me out? because you could move it on

for the enforcement of constitutional rights and a surveillance under bush and obama and the patriot act, warrantless surveillance in the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i am particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president in interpreting the law and in refusing to interpret the law in the way that would drive a stake through the law is not enforced. it's amending that he and force the law in the way that the person making the demand is not taking care and must be painfully executed. it's to the president to interpret the law within the boundaries that he has in a way that makes practical implementation of the law to fluctuate the will of the congress and the fact people that want to sabotage the wall and for if no it not to work ane no bones about it save he is not obeying this particular sentence in order to make it work. talk about hypocrisy. let me ask a question. have you made this statement i want to ask mr. lazarus the following question

security policies of the bush administration in prosecuting the war on terror and how president obama certainly has not shied away from an aggressive prosecution of the war on terror. and you also mentioned later the at least former existence of a national security wing of the democratic party. given that, would you see president obama in some sense as a kind of reincarnation of the national security democrat, or if not, what's the distinction? >> the answer to that is, god no. [laughter] and the reason is that he is totally reluctant to engage in all of this. i think he's deeply philosophically opposed, and he keeps telling us that. i mean, he does the drone warfare, he does the rendition, he does all the things that president bush instituted, and the reason he does it is that he knows that he has to do it as commander in chief. but then he goes ahead and he gives a speech, what was it, two months ago, three months ago: this war on terror has to end. this has gone on long -- and he goes on and he elaborates how it's undermining our lives and our democracy and our privacy. i mean, tha
